I decided that I wanted to pass along some great drumming tracks to my percussionist brethren. Using Spotify, I have started to develop a list of great drummers and great drumming to share with all of you.
Here is the link to the playlist titled Great Drumming
This first iteration is quite bare and I will be updating it weekly and monthly as I find more great tracks to share with you. My goal isn't to find just the fastest or technically proficient drummers out there, but rather to build a mix of musicians who bring a variety of qualities to the table.
On the first list you will find:
Steve Gadd performing Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover
Buddy Rich performing his infamous West Side Story (Live)
Bernard Purdie with Aretha performing Chain of Fools
Jeff Porcaro performing that nasty groove on Rosanna
Joe Morello performing Take Five
Stewart Copeland performing Message in the Bottle
Tony Williams performing Agitation
And many, many, more.
I would love to hear your comments on who should be added to the list. Once again you can get to it here.
